Laws change and get updated. IMO law simply hasnt caught up to reality of lootboxes yet. But it will eventually.sayuu said:sorry by LAW it isn't . . . . . .Popple said:waynejr2 said:MaxBacon said:As seen here: https://www.pcgamesn.com/star-wars-battlefront-2/battlefront-2-loot-box-gambling-belgium-gaming-commission
I would just say it's about time, perhaps this will be the first steps that will start to regulate the unregulated gambling extravaganza that we know as Loot Boxes.
You can see that EA already came in defensive saying their loot crates are not gambling, Blizzard still to comment on it. I hope this goes forward because only legal regulations can defeat the paid RNG monetization trend.
Hey PIG. they are not considered gambling in America so stuff it. All they are doing is a review and that could simply mean they say: "yes, only a fool would call it gambling". So stop your hissy fit.
So what are the odds of getting that one item you wanted from the Loot box? Sorry that is gambling....The only way to get that said item is through the loot box.You cant buy that certain item you wanted from the store. Ever wonder why car dealers dont give away "free" item anymore? LOL
How many copies did an average game sell in 1995? How many does it sell now?lahnmir said:I hate micro transactions like this, but really, game prices have been the same since at least 1995. Taking inflation into account current day 60 dollar games should cost about 110 right now, which they don't. So while every thing has gotten more expensive, gaming got relatively cheaper over the years, not the costs to make them, just the games.
So where does the money come from?
